Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1½ tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
¾ cup canola oil
2 tsp vanilla
¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
3 eggs
¾ cup caramel sauce (homemade or jarred)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
Apple Cider Frosting-7 1/2-8 cups confectioners’ sugar
3/4 cup butter softened
3/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 cup apple cider or apple juice

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour two (8 or 9 inch) round cake pans and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together whole wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside. In a second large bowl, beat sugar and oil together with an electric mixer until well combined, about 30 seconds. Add applesauce, caramel and vanilla, beat for 30 seconds, then add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the buttermilk, and continuing to beat until well combined. Pour batter into prepared cake pans and bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of each cake comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes. Set aside to let cool for 10 minutes, then gently loosen cakes and turn out onto a cooking rack; set aside to let cool completely.
. For the frosting, put sugar, butter, cider, cinnamon and salt into a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Arrange one cake on a large plate and spread about 1 cup of the frosting evenly over the top. Arrange second cake on top then frost top and sides of entire cake with remaining frosting. Set aside at room temperature or in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to allow frosting to set before serving.
